CFP: Extensive academic rigor has been applied to reading Flannery O’Connor as proprietor of a Christ-Haunted southern landscape abundant with the grotesque and religion. Nevertheless, readers often cite, and critics should not dismiss, the role of humor in O’Connor’s distinguished literary career. Associated with the Flannery O’Connor Society, this session of the 2008 SAMLA convention welcomes papers that seek to reexamine the function of humor (including satire, dark humor, and so on) as used by O’Connor.
Potential panelists should submit abstracts of approximately 250-500 words. Electronic submission is preferred. Please send electronic submissions as a .doc or .rtf attachment to Peter J. Ingrao at firstname.lastname@example.org. Submissions may also be mailed to Peter J. Ingrao, JO 31, UT Dallas, 800 West Campbell Road, Richardson, TX 75080-3021.
